The Skycar (or can be referred to as Cable Car or Cablecar when entering it) is an aerial tramway in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

The Skycar is an aerial tramway that connects Lancet, Algonquin to Colony Island in Liberty City, just south of the Algonquin Bridge. The tramway falls under the management of the Liberty City Transport Authority (LTA) and is dubbed "The Pigeon", similar to the "The Fox" nickname stamped onto GTA IV's buses.

Niko, Johnny and Luis can take a ride on the Skycar, though the player cannot look around or move the protagonist whilst they are in the car. First person view can be accessed via the camera on the protagonists' cell phone. NPCs are not programmed to use the Skycar, and the protagonist cannot grab hold of the Skycar whilst it is in motion.

The Skycar cannot be entered if the player has a wanted level, nor can be destroyed. Like the Subway Car, it will ignore the player's vehicle, so they can push them away with no harm at all.

Design

The Skycar appears to be based on the Roosevelt Island Tramway between Manhattan and Roosevelt Island in New York City. As such, the tram cars, stations, and cable pylons share a likeness with the real-life rendition. The Skycar only spawns in a garnet red.

Trivia

  • One of the Grand Theft Auto IV's artworks seen in the game's DVD case depicts what appears to be Niko fighting against another man inside the Skycar, dangerously near the open entrance. It is unknown if it actually depicts an action that was never seen in-game (part of a mission or able to fight with pedestrians while inside a Skycar) or just to depict the presence of the vehicle in the game.
